We all know how yummy chocolate dipped strawberries are. But have you ever tried chocolate dipped clementine's? If not, you are in for a treat! 

I've made these twice in the last week, and plan on making more as soon as I can get to the store to buy more clementine's. They are seriously addictive, and make the perfect after school snack. They would go over great at a potluck too!

What are Clementine's?

Clementine's are the smallest member of the mandarin family. They are super easy to peel, have a sweet flavor and are seedless, making them a favorite of children and adults alike.

So why did I call this recipe Chocolate Cuties? It is a brand name, of a certain type of clementine that comes from California. (This is NOT a sponsored post) You can use any type of clementine you prefer, the Cutie brand just happened to be the ones that were available, when I went shopping for some.

Whichever type you wind up using, you will fall in love with this simple and easy recipe. All you need are TWO ingredients, and about 10 minutes to whip them up. That's it!

Chocolate Cuties

Ingredients

3 clementine's
2 - 3 ounces good quality semi-sweet chocolate, chopped

Directions

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel and pull the clementine's apart into segments. Set aside.
Place chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl, and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time, until chocolate is melted and smooth.(about 90 seconds, depending on your microwave wattage)
Dip segments in chocolate about 1/3 to 1/2 way up, and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Once all of the pieces have been dipped, set the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 20 - 30 minutes. 

Serves 2 - 3


NOTES

  • Make sure to place your chocolate dipped clementine's on parchment paper. It's less messy, and makes them easier to remove once the chocolate has set.
  • I like making these with just chocolate, but they would also be delicious with a small sprinkle of course or flaked sea salt, or crushed nuts.
  • Feel free to use dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet chocolate if you would like. Or switch it up and use White chocolate instead, and top with sprinkles. The kids will gobble them up!
